    Nick Krall's Rise Through Reds' Ranks

    Paul and C. Trent focus on recent Reds organizational news as Nick Krall was appointed Cincinnati's VP/GM of baseball operations. What does this move mean for the club (:30)? Was this a decision guided by finances? What does Krall's multiple titles mean? And for those unfamiliar with Cincinnati's newest front office czar, Krall details his foray into baseball and his rise through the sport's ranks to where he is today (7:00). C. Trent further expands on Krall's baseball upbringing, his communication style, the team's philosophy moving forward and more (12:00). Oh, and let's not forget the possible defining narrative in the Reds' off-season, what are the team's plans for Trevor Bauer (23:00)? Krall explains.

    Remembering Joe Morgan, Why Did Dick Williams Step Down & Non-Tender Twist

    Remembering Joe Morgan, Why Did Dick Williams Step Down & Non-Tender Twist

    Hall of Fame second baseman and Reds legend, Joe Morgan, has passed away at 77-years-old. Paul and C. Trent react to Morgan's passing, the legacy he leaves behind and his contribution to Cincinnati's "Big Red Machine" and their championship runs (:30). Reds president of baseball operations Dick Williams made his position vacant after a decade-plus-long run as a member of the teams' front office. Why did Williams step down, and what factors played into his departure (14:00)? How will his tenure with Cincinnati be remembered? What decisions will be remembered most (22:00)? What's next for this club (25:30)? As unique of a season as 2020 has been, this off-season, including the time when players are non-tendered, might be even weirder (30:00). Plus, the venerable Dusty Baker and other playoff musings (37:15).

    Recapping Reds-Braves Game 1: Missed Opportunities, Braves Deep Pen & Looking Ahead to Game 2

    Recapping Reds-Braves Game 1: Missed Opportunities, Braves Deep Pen & Looking Ahead to Game 2

    Baseball history was made in the first meeting of the Reds-Braves wild-card round. Said benchmarks were achieved in a drawn-out, forgetful fashion as the seventh-seeded Reds conceded a walk-off, the lone score of the game, in the bottom of the 13th inning to fall behind in the series. Paul and C. Trent tackle Cincinnati's missed opportunities, Trevor Bauer's brilliance, the bullpen hanging in through double-digit innings and the pen depth Atlanta bolsters. The guys also react to Joey Votto's postgame comments as well as preview game two.

    Reds' Round One Preview: The F-ing Nightmares, Braves Blistering Bats & Cincy's X-Factor

    Reds' Round One Preview: The F-ing Nightmares, Braves Blistering Bats & Cincy's X-Factor

    Welcome the wild card preview edition of WARP! There certainly was a chance that wouldn't be typed, or said, for that matter, but here we are. Paul and C. Trent detail Cincinnati's leadup to their first postseason berth in seven years, including their determined sweep over Pittsburgh, gutsy series wins over three postseason contenders and the "fu***** nightmare" mentality that guided them through it all (2:30). The Reds' opening round matchup against Atlanta pits strength against strength: Cincinnati's stellar starting pitching versus the Braves' boomstick bats (6:45). Will one side hold an advantage over the other? Is Trevor Bauer's Cy Young chances contingent on his playoff performance, and has rediscovering his slider been the difference maker for Luis Castillo? The Reds and Braves' playoff track record has fallen short of expectations in recent years (14:45). Who stands out as this year's playoff's x-factor (22:15)? Was this Cincinnati's best-case scenario (29:30)? Plus, Cobb County dabster, Trent, takes the stage (34:00).

Just found this.

Excellent interview with Moose. I’m looking forward to seeing future episodes coinciding with a great year for the Reds.

Great stuff

I love listening to and reading these guys. My one issue is Trent SERIOUSLY needs to turn his mic up. He’s just about impossible to hear, and I’m sick of turning my volume up 2 or 3 notches when he’s speaking and back down when he’s not. Other than that, it’s a great podcast

Big fan

I’d never been into podcasts but this one swayed me. Great work Trent and Paul.
